Hi. Feb 14, 2019

There is a forum called Subtitling.
I think it's the best place to ask.
Good luck.

Hi Basima,

I think you meant "burning" subtitles on video. Do you work on PC or Mac? For Mac, I can recommend you Subtitle Edit Pro, great with creating subtitles but some issues with burning. So I use Submerge for burning subtitles on videos/films.
